NMR delivers Veterinary CPD course across the UK on genomics
07 July 2018
The veterinary profession in the UK is becoming increasingly interested in using genomics science to assist with key herd breeding decisions relating to health,fertility and longevity on dairy farms. There are currently 33 genomic traits available in the UK, many of which lend themselves towards health and fitness and interested practices are already considering how to incorporate genomics into Heard Health Planning strategies.NMR, in partnership with Dr Ian Cumming MRCVS, have been running CPD courses introducing 'GCSE level Genomics' around the UK, including two with VetsWest. During the workshop, the biology of genomics is fully explained before moving to several case studies using NMR's web enabled GeneTracker technology giving vets hands-on-experience with the NMR "live data".
Veterinary feedback from the VetsWest CPD sessions includes "The structure of the course was good and the case studies were an excellent illistration of how successfully genomics could be used on farm".
